The Uvalde Memorial Hospital (UMH) Auxiliary presented checks to fall scholarship recipients. Briayanna Walker, Josslyn Guzman, Shelby Swimmer, and Marla Bas were awarded the Auxiliary’s annual fall scholarships of $3,500. All four recipients will be entering their second year in the registered nursing program at Southwest Texas Junior College. Briayanna, Josslyn, Shelby, and Marla all plan to work at UMH, if positions are available, when they complete the RN program.

The UMH Auxiliary has given scholarships to area students pursuing their education in the nursing field for nearly 25years. In that time, they have given more than $70,000 in scholarships for LVNs and RNs continuing their education.The Hospital Auxiliary makes the bi-annual scholarship program possible through special fundraising initiatives.
